Perfect Pairings Grad

Woohoo!!!  Today is the day that Create with Connie and Mary opens our March 2016 Mini Session!  It’s not too late to join!  My card today gives you a hint of my project this month.  It’s all about the grads, the Large Number Framelits and the Pyramid Pals Thinlets Dies!


My kids are grown, of course, but my son IS graduating with his Master’s Degree at Ohio State University in May, so I do have graduation on the mind!  I should have done this in OSU colors to give to him!  lol!  But, I always seem to know 1-2 people who are graduating from high school or college each year…just change up the colors to match their school!  And, the It’s My Party Designer Paper has a couple great black print patterns to coordinate with it!


Perfect Pairings Grad

The Sale-A-Bration set, Perfect Pairings, is a great set…I love the font on it…and it is FREE to get for the rest of the month!  Here’s the inside…simple so you could write a nice note.


Perfect Pairings Grad inside

Here are the details:

  • The base card is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Black folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/2 layer of Bermuda Bay, the 2 x 5-1/4 layer was added.  Then the 1/8″ Bermuda Bay Stitched ribbon was added to hide the seam.
  • 2016 was cut from Silver Glimmer Paper with the Large Number Framelits and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The inside triangle on the Pyramid Pals Thinlet box was cut from Whisper White cardstock, then stamped with Congrats from Perfect Pairings Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • The bowtie from the Pyramid Pals Thinlets was cut from Basic Black and added to the number 1, then a Perfect White Accent added to the center.
  • Inside, a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of the same DSP was added to the bottom of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, then You Did It was stamped across several times with Bermuda Bay Ink.

What a wonderful card Connie! I love the bold numbers and the triangle ‘congrats’ – I love doing that! And it’s never too early to start on grad cards – it will be here before we know it!
